Gracie Lu The Shih Tzu, Weekly Featured Blogger

Oskar & I are glad to get back into the swing of things, so here is our Weekly Featured Blogger, Gracie Lu, the Shih Tzu.

My name is Gracie Lu, and I'm 15 years old in human years (but only 1.5 in doggie years). I'm a black and white purebred Shih Tzu puppy who lives with my human Mama, a cat brother named Mr. Pumpkin, and a black Lab dog brother named Bo. I love to lick faces, play with my toys, and run around in giant 8s in the backyard. I also love tummy rubs and kisses, and I hate baths.

What My Blog is About: Mama and I enjoy showing photos of my daily life on my blog. Sometimes, we update it quite a lot... Other times, Mama gets busy and she forgets to update it. But we always update my blog on major holidays with cute photos of me. So, if you love looking at photos of the cutest shih tzu dog ever - ME - then you will love my blog. I like to wear a lot of dresses, and I feel like I'm barely naked anymore. Mama likes to spoil me with lots of new toys... All the time... I think I have a bigger wardrobe than my Mama, but that's OK. Since I am my mom's first doggie ever, I live quite a spoiled life.

More About Me: Mama has always wanted a Shih Tzu dog, so when she got old enough, she got me! I'm her first dog, so I am pretty special. I've lived with my Mama since I was 6 weeks old. My Shih Tzu Mama was a blonde; and my Shih Tzu Daddy was black. I'm pretty hyper sometimes, but I also enjoy sleeping, too. Sometimes, I enjoy chewing things I shouldn't be eating. And I always end up murdering all of my toys. I chew and bite them until their guts are splattered all over the floor. Mama does sew them back up though, but let's just say... I am quite playful.

If you want to know more about me, please visit my blog. I also Tweet and I have a Facebook page.

Back In The Saddle Again

Hello friends,

I am well and home from the hospital again.  I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all of your prayers & well wishes while I was gone for 2 weeks.  They made me feel great when I got home.

It may take me a few days to get PBU back up to speed, but I still have lots to share about the AKC Eukanuba National Championships and more, so stay tuned :)

3 Pups In A Pop Up

This week we are please to introduce you to 3 Pups In A Pop-Up.

Hi there. We are Kismet, Roxie and Chance. We are all rescue pups living with our mommy and daddy in Atlanta, GA. We are soooo excited to be the featured bloggers here at Pet Blogs United!

Here’s a little about us… Kismet was adopted in May of 1999 when he was about 1 y.o. He is a Tibetan Terrier mix, and a “Wise Old Man” that knows when someone needs a shoulder to lean on or a good face licking. 

Roxie was only 3 month’s old when she was adopted in 2000. She is what mommy calls a "Hybrid Herder" that keeps all all in line and is stuck to mommy like glue. She is also a Certified Therapy Dog and enjoys visiting nursing homes and performing for patients.

Chance, aka "Sir Chauncey, Defender of the Underdog", is mommy’s “foster failure” from 2010. He is also a very good first mate aboard sailboats. He provides lots of laughs and love. He is around 2 or 3 years old, and mostly a Bichon Frise.
We are “Ambassadors for Adoption”, and this year we traveled the country and Canada for 3 months with a pop-up camper promoting pet rescue and adoption. Mommy is even writing a children’s book about us!

We hope you will follow us along on some of our adventures and drop us a line from time to time. We’d love to meet you! Arf!

Some of our favorite posts are:

Sailing For Dummies, Or How I Got The Crabs At Sea

Dorkiness Be Damned, I'm Going To A Dog Show!

I think you all know I'm crazy for dogs.  (Cats, too, for that matter.)  So when I got the opportunity to go to the AKC Eukanuba National Championships as one of Eukanuba's VIP Bloggers I was in heaven!

And then I got nervous...scared...to...death.  While I was lucky enough to know most the of people who would be accompanying me, these were all dog people.  People who show dogs, people who breed dogs, people who know stuff about dog shows.  Well, there was one other in our group that I don't think is a real dog show aficionado, but she happens to be a beautiful veterinarian, who has been to the show before.  Yeah, I think she knows a little bit about dogs too.

I've never been to a dog show, much less a National Championship!  Chance of me looking like a huge dork, likely, very likely. 

Eh, I figured I'd rather be a dork at a dog show than a dork missing the dog show.  I also had the built in security of knowing that these people I had traveled with before were patient about my questions, and really just fun & welcoming people all together.

Well, I had an amazing time, tons of fun stuff to share with you & lots of pictures of cute dogs!  I learned a lot, and I still don't know about titles, and points and disqualifications, but I'm excited to share a dog show outsider's view of this great event with you over the coming weeks.
